The Party Predicament

The Party Predicament is a mystery dinner theater written for 6 actors, 3 men and 3 women. You are purchasing the entire script to copy for each of your actors and director, a prop list, costuming suggestions and clues. You have the rights to perform this play as often as you wish without additional fees or royalties.

The adventure begins in the office of P. Artie Planner, owner of Events Extraordinaire. His staff is planning the birthday party of the season. When a gift turns up missing, the office is in an uproar as everyone searches for the present and accuses the others of thievery. Your audience joins in the fun as they watch and discuss the clues that are left for them.

Like all of the dinner theater scripts provided on this site, the entire evening takes about 2 hours depending on how quickly the dinner and dessert are served. A buffet is fine for this as well. You will need 6 actors who will be willing to memorize and rehearse before the event.

A video of the first act is provided below so that you can judge if this script is right for your event. If you prefer, you can also click here to read the PDF of Act 1 in your browser, or right-click to download it.
